A country for old men
March 23, 2013
Guelph is a middle-sized city about an hours drive west of Toronto. There is a major university there but no major industries that I am aware of. The city is filled with old men. Lonely old men. I mean men over 50 years of age with no lonely old woman. There are more lonely old men than there are university students. There are more lonely old men than there are STOP signs. There are many churches in Guelph. It is known for its churches. And standing in front of those churches every Sunday are hordes of lonely old men. They seldom go inside. Almost 47% of the population of Guelph is men over 50. And they are lonely.
